About Steve Saint:
Mission of Love
Son befriends father’s murderer on the mission field
By Penny Lent
|This is a
ten year old article
written by Steve Saint, son of Nate Saint.
In the article,
written in observance of the 40 year anniversary of his father's
death, Steve tells the story as he had only recently heard it in
1995 - the story from the perspective of the men and women who were
part of the killing party.

It is truly an amazing story of grace and redemption worthy of your
The question people usually ask me is “How did you forgive these people?
And really, the honest truth is I didn’t. I mean, it never occurred to me,
really, that there was anything to forgive. Now, that wasn’t because of
some great altruism. It was just that before my dad was killed, I
remembered how excited Dad was, hoping to be able to contact these people
so that they wouldn’t be killed by the oil companies or the government.
And then after my dad was killed, you know, kids follow their parent’s
clues. I mean, you sit around and your dad’s cheering because some guy
just knocked the stuffings out of someone else trying to catch a football
air, and what do you say? …I mean, that’s brutal, but you grow up
thinking, “That’s great, man, what a great hit!” …My aunt loved these
people. She was willing to risk her life to go and live with them. My mom
was praying for them, my dad…I just couldn’t wait to meet them. I think
it’s just a heritage that people don’t understand… So, um, I can tell you
this, I watched very carefully, I watched my mom and these other four
women and I never, ever, ever noticed or sensed any resentment. Now sad,
oh, yeah, I mean their lives, can you imagine how devastated? I was
devastated. My hero, I watched him fly off into the jungles one morning
and he never came back… I never saw any resentment or anger towards the Waodani and I never saw any resentment or anger towards God, which is even
maybe the bigger deal.
